Council of Industry Partners with Clarkson University to Deliver Strategic Leadership Training

Individual Article,

Clarkson University and the Council of Industry have partnered to offer training in Strategic Leadership for Manufacturing Executives.

The Strategic Leadership for Manufacturing Executives Microcredential Program will strengthen Hudson Valley workforce by providing participants the skills needed to succeed in today's manufacturing environment.

Designed to support experienced and emerging manufacturing executives, the program includes eight modules that can be completed over the course of several months, one at a time.

Participants can pursue one of two options

  1. Complete all eight modules to earn a certificate in Strategic Leadership for Manufacturing Executives co-issued by the Council of Industry and Clarkson University OR 
  2. Choose specific modules and receive a digital micro-credential (badge) for each completed module. Micro-credentials/badges indicate proficiency in the subject areas of each successfully completed module. 

Each module takes approximately 10-12 hours to complete. Modules are predominately asynchronous and self-paced, with bi-weekly synchronous appointments to increase engagement and networking opportunities. 

"Partnering with Clarkson, one of the nation's premier engineering and business universities is a win for Council members," says Council of Industry President Harold King. Members will gain access to training and education, research, interns, and employees that will help them thrive in an increasingly competitive global manufacturing environment."

The full program begins in June, with the Program Kickoff via Zoom on June 7.
